Mutu to the Gazzetta: “Viola needs cynicism: in the final the only thing that matters is winning. Point on Bonaventura”

Interviewed at notebooks de La Gazzetta dello Sportthe former striker of, among others, Fiorentina, Juventus and Verona, Adrian Mutu spoke about the Conference League final that the Viola will play in Athens against Olympiacos at 9.00pm tomorrow evening: “I have Florence in my heart, always. This year I have followed Fiorentina a lot: they are a feisty team like their coach , in addition to having an important game, he was someone who absorbed the game and understood quickly. What is needed in the final, in some cases, is everything patience”

On opponent Jovetic: “Truly an incredible coincidence. This year he has had some physical problems, I don’t know if he will play from the start but if he comes on the pitch Jovetic is always one of the number ones.”

About Nico Gonzalez: “I’ve seen him score some beautiful goals. He has more pace, important and interesting numbers. Let’s say he needs to pay a little more attention to penalty kicks.”

Who’s aiming for the final?: “I’ve always focused on Bonaventura: he gives balance, goals, push, play. And then I like Sottil, a bit discontinuous but I know he’s hurt. This team still seems very mature to me. I take this opportunity to send my good luck to the purple people. They are all in my heart.”
